Abstract
Mindfulness will refer to intentionally paying attention to the here and now experience without judgment. Mindfulness has shown promise as an intervention to be used for a broad range of ages and presenting concerns. It has very recently begun to be explored as an effective way to enhance the services provided by various caregiver professions, in ways that seemed to have clear implications for teachers. The previous study found that classroom teachers believed mindfulness to have been helpful in their personal and professional lives. This study explored how teachers related mindfulness to their livelihoods. This research was using qualitative methodology with semi-structured observation and in-depth interview method. The results described that participants found mindfulness to be useful in their personal and professional lives and thought that their own mindfulness practice was helpful to teach their students. Recommendations include offering courses on mindfulness to teachers, bringing mindfulness to all school personnel at schools, and integrating mindfulness into existing teacher preparation programs.
